We are pleased to announce our 2016 program of Grants to Archives. This year’s grants are funded by the Friends of the AIP History Programs.
The grant program is intended to help support significant work to make accessible records, papers, and other primary sources that document the history of modern physics and allied fields (such as astronomy, geophysics, and optics).
The maximum grant amount is $10,000 USD. Grant funds can only be used to cover direct expenses connected with preserving, inventorying, arranging, describing, or cataloging appropriate collections. Expenses may include archival storage materials and staff salary/benefits but not overhead or other indirect costs. Preference will be given to medium size or larger projects for which the grant will be matched by the parent organization or other sources.
To apply, read and complete the steps outlined in Grants to Archives: Guidelines and Application Procedures.
The deadline for receipt of applications is August 15, 2016.
The program is offered annually as funds permit.
